My heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your husband, father, uncle, grandpa. He was known as so many things to all who knew him. I have many wonderful memories of him. Javier was Santa Clause to me when I was a kid. My cousins and I always wanted to help him pass out candy canes to passerbys on Christmas Eve. The first time I came home after graduating basic training, he told me how proud of me he was. He was generous and kind hearted man. I will always remember him. May he rest in eternal peace.

Truly one of the classiest men ever. He defined what a man is to be with his family. It’s hard to match his legacy as a husband, father, grandfather, hard worker, veteran and friend to many! Salute, Sir; RIP
